That is all.
Did you notice that the BG wasn't even visible on camera when the cop started running?

Instead of running and hooting-hollering I think he could have tried just walking toward the guy and catching him by surprise.

I'm serious. We work 12hr shifts, 4 on 4 off, 5a-5p. On my 1st and 3rd day at work I get to work out from 5a-7a. Something started under my old Chief. OUr new chief doesn't like it and seems like every week there's some new reason workouts get cancelled.

Ya'll don't all get paid workouts?

I've heard of paid workout time, but it's only for SWAT or certain departments which had some good contract negotiations.

I used to fight to keep my weight in check as well. I do not have that problem anymore. I do Crossfit and I am faster, stronger and in better shape than I was 20 years ago coming out of Army basic training when I was 18 years old.

I don't know of many departments that have paid workouts in my state. The only one that comes to mind is Myrtle Beach but that's only for the beach patrol officers. They get to swim, run and lift on duty if they have time.

Our officers can work out on duty twice a week (they get 90 minutes) instead of taking a meal break.

Nice perk.

True. Although in 90 minutes, you can get a decent workout and still grab a quick bite.

I'm four weeks into CrossFit. Getting stronger and cardio is improving. Weight loss is a result of the vomit from the workouts.

LOL. I've not actually thrown up from it but I've come close. Today's WOD is pretty brutal so I'm not looking forward to it. I've been at it for over a year now. It's an unbelievable workout.

Just a little background on our latest foot pursuit. Saferide is a program where 2 civilians pick up cooperative drunks and give them a ride home or to various detox facilities.

http://vancouverrecoveryclub.com/Van..._saferide.html


Just last week a homeowner came home to find someone in her home (break and enter) and scared him off. She flagged down Saferide. One of the civilians get in a foot pursuit and called it extremely well on his radio. The foot pursuit lasted 8 blocks and involved jumping over 4 foot fences and cutting through several yards. The highlight was climbing onto a second floor balcony and then jumping over a 10 foot fence into a neighbouring yard. Eventually the suspect ran into a dog handler.

I walked the route with him afterwards and couldn't believe how far they had run and was able to broadcast so well. He's been working there for 5 years and learned from listening to the police radio how to call it properly.

My boss and I wrote him up for a civilian commendation.

I haven't puked either, but we certainly have had the bucket out just in case. One WOD was a ton of burpees and then a a million squats, lunges, jumping lunges, jumping squats, and then more regular squats and lunges. Got queasy. Definitely got light-headed.

What amazes me is that during week 1, my recovery would take days. Now, I feel almost fine after a night's sleep. Even at my age (39 as of Jan 30th) the body adapts better than I thought it would.

The only thing I have trouble with is movements that require jumping. My left knee just ain't havin' it.

How often are you going?

I'm 38 years old also. I work out six days a week generally. As far as crossfit, I go 4 to 5 times a week usually. I spend the other days running or go on really long walks. Just keep at it and your knee should get strong enough to start doing all the exercises. I have a torn labrum in my shoulder that was acting up when I did traditional workouts (especially benching and shoulder presses). Once I got into Crossfit, the rest of my muscles got strong enough to compensate for the injury and I rarely have any issue with it anymore. It can only be repaired with surgery but I don't need it really now. Sometimes, it starts hurting when I do overhead squats so I just do thrusters or something similar on those days. It takes a few months of Crossfit before your body truly adjusts to it. Some days I can recover overnight while other days I have to take a day because I am smoked.

Ahhh yes shoulder injuries rock. My left shoulder has crazy tendonitis, but I've found as long as I keep it moving day-to-day it does ok.

I'm doing CrossFit 3x per week right now. Trying to give the connective tissues time to adjust.

One thing is for sure - even with my fat ass slinging around weight and doing burpees and all that crazy stuff, my back has NEVER felt better.

Nice. Glad to hear it. When I was a month or two in I was always worried I was overworking myself and thought all the little aches and pains were a problem. Once your body adjusts (as much as it can anyway) to the rigors of the WOD's, things stop hurting so much. My core strength is much higher than it has ever been.

Back in December I hadn't been under a bench press in months. I assumed I was much weaker since I hadn't done even a rep so I went to the old gym to find out. I was able to get within 10 pounds of my previous max without having done it once in 3 or 4 months. It's just because my core strength has improved so much.

BTW, its freaking addictive if you haven't figured it out yet.

Today's WOD is going to be tough. Headed there in about 30 minutes:

2013-2-3 Monday


10 min AMRAP
5x Power Clean
20x Double-unders
5x Dead lift
10x Jumping jacks


Followed by “Karen”
For Time: 150x Wall Balls

I don't know if my box will publish the WOD in advance. And I don't jump rope. Not yet anyway. Tears my knee up. Another couple months maybe.

150 WB could be a puker.

Come do bike patrol in my coverage area, entire town is on a hill a mile long.


I actually put on about 20 pounds in the academy and i was running 15 plus miles a week and lifting 3 days too. I've been trying to get back into shape.

I gained 5 pounds of weight overall in the academy but lost 6% bodyfat, go do the math on that one.

It's time for collective L.E. and realize that physical fitness is important, arguably more important than having the advanced degrees that many administrators are enamored with. Mandate standards, provide workout time, equipment/subsidized gym memberships, etc. It really is that important.

Fitness standards went by the wayside when it was realized that most admin wouldn't meet the standard and there would be tons of liability for WC when officers hurt themselves working out on duty.
